Re: Best low light FF Canon DSLR

This theoretical discussion goes way to deep for me, so let’s make it more practical. A while ago I was a day out with my family and I wanted to take some shots in a poorly lit lunchroom. This was the best i could do with a stil subject at 50mm f/2.8 1/60 ISO 4000. I could have used a slower shutterspeed, but not for the pics i took of my kids.

My thoughts are as followed, if I used a 50mm prime at f/2 with the same shutterspeed I could have taken the picture at ISO 2000. Going to 85mm on a FF sensor (50x1.6=80, but there is no 80mm EF prime) at f/2 (i am aware of the change in DOF) with the same shutterspeed I could have take the picture at ISO 1200 if this sensor would be just as sensitive for light as my APS-C sensor. So far, am I correct and if so is this major part of the gain that can be found in going to FF, or is the sensor it self also more sensitive to light in the range of a stop or more.
